Our local camera store usually has one or Pentaxes on display. Interesting to note how other maker's terminology creeps into the subconscious: the card for the K-50 says it comes with a "VR" lens. Maybe they meant "WR" but it wouldn't have applied to that kit lens.

I bought my K-50 from Costco a year ago, but I ordered it online. I've never seen one in the local, brick and mortar, store. Next time I'm at Target I'll have to check it out.

Isn't it awesome to see Pentax and Ricoh branded cameras on display? It's like seeing your kids perform in a talent show or play at school and feeling proud of them!
Unfortunately, its also like watching your kid be the most talented at the show, but only receiving polite applause, because the less-talented but more popular kid has everybody's attention.

HA HA, they call the 18-55 a "VR" lens. My guess is for $200 less, it got some looks. But I remember the horrible looks of disappointment on the faces of the staff at Futureshop, last time they had Pentax's on display, when I asked to see the Pentax. It was like "really?". Back then I used to think Pentax should have it's own store, like the Apple Stores. To many store mangers have Pentax stock, but have biased staff who only want to sell what they know, and would prefer not to have to learn anything else/
